I stayed here for 3 nights. The Hotel is ok, but nothing more. Personally I would not rate it as a 4 star Hotel. My opinion is based on the following: I arrived rather late the first night. Around 2300. I was hungry after traveling for many hours, so I asked the reception if there where any places where I could fine anything to eat. They suggested that I took a stroll around to see. After doing that, I found nothing, so I asked the receptionist if they had any chips, fruit, or anything, but no. Nothing. Nothing in the minibar either, so I just had to go hungry to bed. That’s kind of ok, but a service minded staff would at least find you an apple or something from the kitchen Well that said. The also ok, but nothing more. Very small, bug average. The breakfast is nothing to write home about. It’s ok, you get what you need, but the staff.... it’s like your getting in their way for there coffee. No service what so ever. Today I bought a take away pizza from a place nearby, and I wanted a glass of red wine to go with that, which I had on my room. I got down to the reception to ask if I could borrow a glass( cause all the glasses in your room is plastic). The reply was that I could get a plastic cup. I asked why, since I explained that I wanted to enjoy a glass of red wine, but no. No glass, just plastic. According to the receptionists it was the house rule So basically I rate this hotel average for the lack of service minded attitude Been here, not coming back since there are so many other hotels in Rome at this price range

I stayed here on my first solo holiday in September, highly recommended, lovely staff, rooms aren’t massive but very comfortable and decorated nicely (lovely artwork on the ceiling). Breakfast was not amazing but good enough, to get you prepared for a day of sightseeing, a little bit out of the way from main town, which is nice as it’s quiet, take about 15 mins if that to walk to Trevi Fountain, which I used as my base point when exploring. Never felt unsafe when walking back to hotel, even late at night. Staff were lovely and knowing I was alone, spoke to me every day to make sure I was ok. Would 100% stay again.

Stayed at hotel for 5 nights lovely room wasn't massive but big enough. Comfy bed. Clean. Plenty of toiletries.cant comment on TV as don't watch on holiday. Big walk in shower. Staff friendly ( men on reception & chambermaids. Breakfast was good plenty to choose from. Would stay again

Stayed here in December for a weekend break with the family. The hotel is in a quiet location but is in a good area for visiting many attractions. The Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain are only about 10/15 mins walk away. The Colosseum is about 30 mins walk. All attractions are relatively close and we did not take any form of public transport. The reception staff were very friendly on arrival and departure and offered valuable advice when out and about. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Good choice of meats, cereals, croissants. The firm favourite with my kids was the pancake maker. Good choice of restaurants and pizzerias local to the hotel. Rooms very comfortable and bathroom a good size. We definitely plan to visit Rome again in the future and will look to book this hotel.

I was slightly apprehensive when I first saw this hotel. Even though it is just a couple of blocks off the Via Veneto and just a few blocks from the Borghese Gardens, the street had a slightly seedy look to it. Also the hotel didn't look all that great. However, once inside all fears were gone. It was quite beautiful. The street also turned out to be quite nice. We actually parked the car on the street for two nights and had no problems whatsoever. There were several quaint sidewalk cafes nearby between the hotel and the via Veneto. Of course there were many sidewalk cafes, including the Hard Rock Cafe within 15 minutes walk. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and spoke excellent English, which was a blessing as I speak very little Italian. The room itself was huge. The layout was a little different, but there was plenty of room to spread out. Our room actually had three beds. One king and two singles. So it would be great for a family. The bathroom was large and had a nice shower with good hot water. We actually had two rooms. One for us and another for the daughter and granddaughters. I had enough Choice Privilege points to pay for one of the rooms for two nights. That was a really nice perk! You could tell that this had been an elegant hotel at one time. It was still very nice, but a little dated. The room had a lot of gilt in it. The ceiling was like a work of art. The included breakfast was quite nice with a good selection of fruits and meats and rolls. It is about a 15 or 20 minute walk to the Spanish Steps from here and another ten minutes or so to Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. The Borghese Gardens are only a few minutes away. If you are in Rome and can't afford the Westin or one of the really fancy hotels on the main drag, consider the Principessa Isabella. We were very pleased with it and would happily go there again.

This hotel has a nice entrance, but there wasn't much else that I enjoyed about the hotel. The gentleman who checked us in was very sullen and not at all friendly. I wasn't impressed with the room. Two small beds that were very close to each other. There was no soap in the bathroom and only two bath towels. I asked the front desk person if we could get soap and more towels and his response was "Yes soap, no towels". There was a decent continental breakfast in the morning. Their car service to the airport is $50 or $55 if you need to use a credit card.

My room was at the top floor - 615, tiny little but very cosy, with a very comfortable bed and a perfectly clean bathroom, I had everuthing I needed. And the reception was wonderful - thank to them I felt like a special VIP guest.

We spent 8 Nights here at the Principessa Isabella. We arrived at 1600hrs after 24hrs of travel from Australia. Reception was gorgeous. Water fountian. Marbel like floors and open areas. Both staff members at reception were helpful and nice The room we had was at expectations for a city hotel room. On the small side with desk, wardrobe with safe and balcony. The bed was hard and the pillows were flat. I slept well on this as I found it comfortable but my partner; he didn't and the first couple of nights/days were long for him. Room service was done each day. Room was always clean and the bed made. Room was restocked in the bathroom supplies we used. Towels were always fresh The room was fantastic. The chair at the desk was a bit old and I didn't trusy it. Some of the fixtures in the bathroom were broken at the wall for the towel rack. Otherwise room was fantastic. Breakfast was a buffet/selection of choice. Just common breakfast foods. Started at 7am. We didn't get breakfast 2 mornings as we had 6am tours. We found some local produce areas they day before and were happy with this. Room has a mini fridge. We didn't use it except for my medication. It is stocked with drinks for use at cost. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would be very inclined to do so again when I come back to Rome

This hotel ticks all the right boxes as you enter with its fountains and marble beckoning,yet that quickly dissolves once one settles in, my room on the 6 th floor had no wifi reception,the mattress was uncomfortable,not enough blankets to feel cosy,room was tiny and uncomfortable,tvset was very small...I had to sit downstairs to use wifi and the chairs were uncomfortable...would I stay here again...NO WAY....

Not entirely what was expected. Would categorise this place as overpriced and dated. Better hope you don't get a corner room either otherwise you won't receive reliable wifi in your room. The breakfast is sparse. Does offer a type of pancakes though which was enjoyable. The room was small to say the least (for 3 people). Stank of smoke. One of the receptionists was awesome always saying hello and greeting us when we walked past the lobby. The other would barely lift his eyes from the computer to answer any questions we may have had.
